Yes, the little one growing inside of me is starting to make his or her appearance. There’s not much of a bump and I don’t have a picture to show you, but my regular clothes were starting to get really uncomfortable.
These are two of my favorite new short sleeved sweaters that I’ll likely wear with a long sleeved t-shirt underneath.
I got to try on the little velcro baby bumps to see what the clothes will look like when I’m 7 or 9 months pregnant. That was pretty strange, too. My mom took a picture and I may be able to get my hands on that to show all of you. The other thing I noticed is that when I took the baby bump simulator off, I noticed my tiny bump a lot more! Maternity clothes these days don’t hide the bump, the accentuate it so you can have your normal shape and curves, but that the bump looks like a baby bump and not a Christmas diet bump.
I’ll be 17 weeks pregnant on Friday. Time is flying! I went to the doctor on Monday for the 16 week appointment and to have the genetic blood test done. I don’t know the test results yet, but I’m trying not to really think about it. I didn’t have an ultrasound, but I heard the strong heartbeat again and the doctor says that everything is fine.
I am feeling much better during the day (except for the last two days when I’ve pretty much thrown up all day), but I’m finding that I feel sick right when I lie down to go to sleep. Here’s to no more throwing up in 2009!
Todd and I are spending the evening at home with Italian take-out and some movies. I can’t think of a better way to spend the evening! Happy New Year, friends.
